inside these hands - {Locally Grown Love}

A lovely Sunday afternoon spent at Studio Trilogy and everyone involved in Locally Grown Love, a little eco-friendly wedding pop up. Special thank you to Rebecca Jean Catering for having me along as their preferred photographer. It was so wonderful to see this artistic and thoughtful pop up shop and meet all the creative vendors. Thought I would share some photos from the day but I have to say the ultimate highlight was the poem written for me by the talented Silvi Alcivar of the Poetry Store. She asked me one simple question about what went through my head as I'm photographing, my answers: memories, moments....and feeling others joy, not just capturing it but feeling it. And then the outcome was this beauty: inside these hands for jenna,

oh, how you hold

moments held inside

camera shutter open then

closing, feeling the light

inside what you see,

knowing we're meant to be

mirrors reflecting

not just the memory

but the life

that always


How simple and beautiful. She wrote this in a few minutes. Thank you for your talent and sharing it with strangers.  I can only imagine the amount of secrets you hear in a day.
